    Well...the beans are sowed. Now it's a waiting game. I'll give a basic rundown on my set-up:

    Tent - 31" x 31" x 71"
    600W digital ballast in cooltube
    T5 for seedlings and part of veg
    TD-150S exhaust fan
    Coco medium in smartpots
    DTW feeding
    Canna Coco A + B nutrients
    Canna Pk 13/14

    I should probably additionally note that this is my first grow. But with any luck I'll have a couple of knowledgable peeps coming thru and help if needed.

    I have 8 of 9 sprouted. One of the Deep Psychosis beans didn't even crack (DP3). I'll give it another day or so. Now I need to figure out when to start feeding them nutes.

    All I have are 1 gallon and 3 gallon smart pots. 1 gallons are probably too large huh?

    I'm here to help where I can. I know nothing about coco, so I'm no help so far lol. Things are looking good for being at this stage. :)

    Jig you think that 1 gallons are too large to put those seedlings into?

    As soon as our seeds have true leaves, we put them in 3 gal smartpots w/ coco. These plants do not like being moved after roots are established. Moving them from a hatch pot to a 1 gallon to a 3 gallon would stress them unnecessarily. They'll grow into the bigger pot. This is only our second grow, so take it fwiw.

    Thank you both for the advice. Looks like I'll need to make a run to the store today or tomorrow. The only issue I have is space in my grow tent and I have 8 sprouted so far. 3 gallons will take up more space than I have until I can determine if they're broads or dudes. I may have to go with 1 gallons for the time being.

    Well one of the Deep Psychosis and one of the Qrazy Quake is working on shedding its shell. The others are still on their initial leaf set but not to their first true leaf set. I've been giving them a weak dose (~1/4 strength) of Canna Coco nutes. I've been warned that this stage is the most slow progressing. hah. I'll give it a couple more days before transplanting into the 1 gallons I have.

    West let me know at any point if you think they are progressing slower than your experience. I tried posting pictures like you said and it's posting them the same.

    Well I've made my first rookie mistake already but I think I've caught it quick enough. I didn't exactly time my pH kit right when I bought it. It was a few days behind (5 days since start). So I sampled the water I've been feeding them and it was 7.5. SO I flushed what was previously feed to them (which was a process all on its own). I'm beginning to understand that growing is a labor of love. The amount of care I put into each movement when I was moving things around so I could remedy the situation was ridiculous. The growth was probably slowed by this mistake but I think it'll all work out fine.
